The Adventures of Super Pickle

Today we took Gryffin to the St Louis Science Center for the first time. They were having a Marvel Comics exhibit so it was just as much for Mike as it was Gryffin. They both had a marvelous (hee hee) time. The Science Center also has a big dinosaur. The same one they had when I was a kid going on field trips. Gryffin really likes dinosaurs but not this one. He thought it was pretty cool, until it roared. That scared him a bit but he did like spotting Rex from far away.
He stocked up on the booty. A Spiderman poster, a picture of a comic book cover with him dressed as Spiderman and a new Stegosaurus stuffed dinosaur from Build-a-Bear. They actually have one of those inside the Science Center. Its pretty cool though, when it roars it doesn't scare Gryffin. He likes that dinosaur so much he insisted on taking it to the ice cream shop down the block tonight.

Clara Jane loves the dinosaur. Although she thinks the big dino is "kissing" the, um, dead one. We haven't told her otherwise.

I think a bunch of us are going to try to hit the Marvel exhibit on Sunday.

Isaiah & Gideon both had the same reaction as Gryffin did to the big T-Rex at the Science Center. ;) My boys only recently figured out the T-Rex isn't "kissing" the Triceratops!

The Marvel exhibit sounds like it would be something cool for all 3 of my boys.. we'll have to check it out.

I love the new picture of you & Gryffin. I still can't believe he's as big as he is already. Enjoy your weekend!

I didn't think anything scaried Mike but I don't know if Gryffin looks more scaried than Mike or not?
